White Sox Vs. Twins Preview: Chris Sale Continues Second Stint In Rotation

Chris Sale has been one of the brightest spots for the Chicago White Sox this season, and his return to the starting rotation has gone swimmingly. In two starts, Sale has given up only four earned runs in 10.1 innings while striking out 10 and only walking three.

Sale will enter the game with a 2.91 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP, and he'll face a team in the Minnesota Twins that is one of the worst hitting teams in the American League. That, of course, didn't mean much last night, when the Twins hung nine earned runs on White Sox starter Gavin Floyd.

The Twins will trot out starter Scott Diamond, who has allowed only three earned runs in 19.1 innings pitched this season. Those three earned runs came in his only road start, though, when he pitched five innings vs. the Milwaukee Brewers, and U.S. Cellular Field is a much less forgiving stadium for pitchers than Minnesota's Target Field.

Game date/time: Wednesday, May 23, 7:10 p.m. CT

Location: U.S. Cellular Field, Chicago, Ill.

TV: CSN
